Descrição do evento

Descrição

Sex, religion & politics are forbidden topics of conversation .... so that's exactly what we are going to talk about in January, February and March!

About this Event

Join us for an evening of meaningful conversation without the usual small talk. The best bits about an English Pub, including a wood fired stove, alcohol and a vibrant community, but without the crappy weather and Brexit talk.

Each month, Impact Hub and Life Questions Academy team up to offer a topic and prompt questions that test the boundaries to ignite heated debate.

Glasses of wine will be € 1.50 for non-members, and € 1 for members.

A plate of vegetarian food from the local market will be € 3 for non-members, and € 2 for members.

-------------------------

Over the next 3 months, on the last Friday of each month, we are turning taboos on their head and facing religion, sex, and politics head on.

This month our topic will be Sex, Morality & Business

-------------------------

Prompt Questions:

+Norms about male:female interaction vary across cultures. How can an international business set guidelines appropriate to all? Must we default to the most conservative option? Eg no cheek kissing anywhere, because in America it’s not acceptable.


+The CEO of McDonald’s was fired for having a consensual relationship with a junior colleague. It violated company policy but no complaints were brought against either party. Was this fair?

+Is it better to make prostitution legal or illegal? Which one is likely to cause the least harm?

+Should a prostitute be able to discriminate against their clients based on race/age/sex when other businesses may not be allowed to?

+Should different rules apply to men, women and trans people when considering questions of sexual harassment or abuse? If so, how do? If not, is that to neglect the vulnerabilities of historically oppressed/excluded groups?

-------------------------


How it works:
--------------------------
We usually arrive and engage in casual conversation for around 20 or 30 minutes while we wait for everyone to arrive. Grab yourself a drink and get to know this international community of curious and interesting people.


We then divide the group into tables of 5 or 6 people and the discussion theme starts. Each table has one moderator who knows the format and a list of prompt questions to get the conversation started.


We like serious questions, but we also make sure the format is always casual and fun.


See you there!
